About This Website
LivingwithFCS.org is a site for all Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS) patients, caregivers and family members that offers information, resources and support. The goals of this site are to build connections and offer resources and support to help FCS patients become informed advocates for themselves and their disease. This website will share new developments and information to help patients and families on their journey and is focused on helping to build the FCS community through providing a forum for patients to meet, exchange questions, share challenges, and offer support to one another. Global Genes is able to produce this site with an unrestricted educational grant from Akcea Therapeutics.
